Mothers of Adekunle Gold and Simi have spoken about their children’s exploit in the music industry and also the relationship between the duo. They both also talked about how it felt like when their children said they wanted to do music.
Simi’s mum said about Simi:
‘Even when she was in school she has always said she likes to be into music, she knew what she wanted to do and I have been encouraging her and any parent should encourage his or her child. Do not force your own ideas on your child. So she wanted to be in music and I pray for her, encourage her, entrust her into the hands of God so I am happy that she is doing what she is happy doing’.
‘If she was working in the bank she wouldn’t be a happy person, this is what she wanted to do, she is happy doing it and I am happy for her’.
Simi’s mum also spoke about how it was when her daughter was yet to make it big in the music industry.
‘At the beginning when the music was not moving on well, but being a child of God I’ve always trusted God that eventually thing will work out better and we are where we are today’.
Speaking in an interview with HipTV, Adekunle Gold’s mum revealed the tussle within the family when her son decided to go into music. She said she was surprised when Adekunle Gold wanted to quit his job for music adding that he is the only son and the first child.
When asked about Adekule Gold’s relationship with Simi, Adekunle Gold’s mum said, ‘Simi is such a cool, diligent, amazing, caring and loving lady. That’s all what i can say’, she said.
